CFO magazine today rolled out its 2012 portfolio of conferences including seven unique events. Designed to inform, inspire, and propel finance executives into higher levels of performance, each event is unique–with subjects ranging from corporate performance to innovation and best practices in competitive transformation.

“Each event is unique and provides a blend of information and insight as well as a rich networking experience with speakers and attendees in a positive solutions-focused environment,” said Deborah Patton, SVP, Conferences. “We build our conferences around real-life experiences that are compelling and relevant to the senior finance executive.
